So I just got a lathe and both of my kids (7 and 4) wanted to make something on the lathe. They helped turn two green branches (maple and ash) into lightsabers (we all watched Return of the Jedi last night). They chose to color them with crayons. I’m happy that my lathe works well (Rikon mini-lathe), but I more happy that my kids both had fun turning relatively green branches into toys.
My daughter also had fun playing with the pile of wet shavings on the floor.
